A return to the Supersport Championship with Ashcourt Racing in 2019
Ulsterman Lee Johnston will return to the British paddock this season, lining up in the Dickies British Supersport Championship with his newly-formed Ashcourt Racing team. A title-winner in the Superstock 600 class earlier in his career, Johnston will make his comeback in the series alongside his road race commitments in a new team formed with Hull-based Ashcourt Group and long-time sponsors East Coast Construction. Johnston said: “I am really looking forward to this year and competing in the Supersport class and with the track time it offers it will really benefit me. I have wanted to do this for a while now and I had the idea a few months back and we have been mentally busy putting everything together. But seeing how everything has come together makes this all mean so much to me. “2011 was the last time I raced full-time in the championship so I am under no illusions of the challenge ahead, but I am looking forward to banging bars with guys like Jack and Alastair!”
